Engadget Review

This is Alcatel OneTouch's first stab at making a smartwatch, and it's obvious the company's not drawing from a vast pool of experience. Despite the goal of delivering a polished, attractive smartwatch with a reasonable price tag, the Alcatel OneTouch Watch feels eagerly amateurish at best and just poorly thought out at worst.

It's not a great smartwatch. It's not even a good smartwatch. But it will put notifications and activity-tracking on your wrist, and give you an idea of what smartwatches are all about.

The Onetouch Watch leaves a lot to be desired, especially when it comes to useful notifications on your wrist. ... The Onetouch Watch is cheap, and it looks good, but that’s where its appeal ends as a smartwatch.

CNET
The Alcatel OneTouch Watch is an affordable and reasonably attractive basic smartwatch, but it doesn't work well enough to justify choosing one over better and increasingly comparably priced alternatives.

The Alcatel OneTouch Watch gets the basics right, but the lack of an app store and finicky fitness tracking offset the affordable price and broad compatibility of this smartwatch.

This is a wearable specifically built to be simple and accessible, and it deserves kudos for succeeding at the former. But its price tag just isn’t low enough to make it worth the compromises it takes to get there. At $99 this would be a must-buy smartwatch. At its current price, it’s not.
